In 2015 I came to Australia as a student to learn English. As everyone knows, nothing is easy from the start. I didn't speak almost a word of English. I thought about giving up and going back to Brazil but my goal to stay and study was bigger than that. I got a job as a cleanner and slowly I met people that helped me a lot to get other jobs in cleaning. In December last year I felt a cyst in my breast and on the 10th of January this year I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was shocking at the beginning specially living by myself in another country apart from my family and friends. But after talking to my family I decided to stay and do all the treatment in Melbourne for the quality, price (In Brazil it would be even more expensive) and to not interrupt my studies and go back rushing to Brazil. Unfortunately my health insurance doesn't cover all the medical expenses and even with the chemotherapy effects I haven't stopped working as a cleaner. Since the diagnosis I still have been working otherwise without all disposition and dedication as before. I'm going back to Brazil at the end of the year once the treatment is finished. But until then I still have to pay the exams, medicines, home rent, studies and food. So I would like to ask for assistance from whoever can help me with my situation. Any donation is welcome and I'm very grateful to all of you
